“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one.”
John 13: 34-35
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Think of all the possible personality traits that we inherit, and then add to that all of our life experiences and how they affect our behavior and our personality and you'll end up with an unfathomable number of combinations to make so many different types of people. Yet Jesus called us to love one another. but more than that to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Think about that and let it really sink in. He said it was the greatest commandment. There are so many different facets to a person. While growing up my Mom told me to pick out the characteristics we like best about a person, and concentrate on those. Just shove the less lovable traits to the back burner. Pretty wise advice wasn't it?
